May 2nd work day

We worked out at East End for about 6 hours today. We had around 70 volunteers from Cool Spring Baptist church plus 4 community members, 2 VCU students and 5 regulars. We got a lot done. Many plots were cleared and many grave markers uncovered. Several of the men ran weed eaters and knocked down a lot of growth. Others got the tires moved from the end of the road to the staging area where the dumpster will be. Many loads of vegetation were hauled to the front area of the cemetery. After leaving East End, we regulars walked around Evergreen Cemetery for about 2 hours. It was sad to see how grown up the areas were where we used to work had gotten. Four of our regulars were still there working when I left.
